This air tank simply doesnt hold air. The two plugs provided to plug two of the four ports are too loose fitting (even with lots of teflon tape) to do the job. The 1/4" hose provided to hook up the gauge also leaks at the fitting. In general, this tank has been poorly machined and is not worth the trouble. I have returned this tank for credit.

I use this tank to run my train horns and as an air source for lots of things. It is small enough that I was able to mount it in the back of my Jeep.

Smittybilt XRC 2.5 Gallon Air Tank
Absolutely un-usable. Do not buy this tank. It is not 2.5 gallons. It is only about 1 or 1.5. The fittings quality is unsafe, unusable and less than Harbor Freight quality. The tank has 5 holes for fittings, The threads are terrible, and could strip out on the cheap fittings. The kit comes with plugs for the extra holes, but the plugs are not tappered and will go right through the holes.
This is absolutely one instance of not even getting what you pay for.

This tank is a great deal! It's less than what the competitors are offering and it comes with a great deal more. Mine included several accessories that I would have purchased for my OBA setup anyway. For anyone putting an OBA system in their ride, I highly recommended this tank.

Excellent port location for drains!
On the trail to air up tires or possibly air tools if needed. Also have an on board compressor.
Price was excellent for the size and really like the port locations.
My only negetive at this point is the carrying handle but can removed with a little cutting and grinding.

Nice size tank
Tank works well. Fittings and hose are odd ball size, leak and break easy. Had to clean up all threads to use tank. Ok if you just use your own fittings and hose
so this tank comes with all of the hoses and fittings listed?

I have a 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser with GF Goodrich All Terrain T/A LT265/75R16 Tires. When all 4 tires are deflated to 17 lbs of pressure is this Air Tank capable of refilling all Tires back to 45 lbs of pressure? If it's not capable what type of 12 volt portable Air Compressor would be needed to do the task?
